Singapore is a treasure box for architectural heritage buildings. This has been given a nod by the famous local restaurateur Lo & Behold Group, which has ventured into the hotel business with the opening of The Warehouse. Located on the banks of the Singapore River, the hotel is housed in a space built as a warehouse in 1895. Industrial interior design all over the hotel rings true to its origins. The warehouse look in its 37 guest rooms were devised by local artisans.

Milan-based furniture manufacturer MDF Italia launched its new Sign Filo. The chair is made of 45 metres of thin wire that has been processed through an interweaving-and-welding process, just like a precious metal. The material allows the chair to have hollow space in the middle of the construction. Designer Piergiorgio Cazzaniga makes the chair’s build into part of its appeal, along side a catchy outline and elegant metal finish.

The wait is over for the people of Hamburg, as well as for fans of Herzog and de Meuron, as Elbphilharmonie Hamburg is complete after 15 years in the making. The facade of the building looks like it consists of several tents. The stage is located in the centre of the hall, with a drop ceilingto optimize lighting. The concert hall adapted an organically shaped ceiling for an optimized sound distribution for the 2,100 spectator seats. The organic feel of the ceiling influenced the space’s overall design, even down to the chairs.
